New Monterey Police Blotter – June 2009

Lovers Point Restrooms Locked Up

There once was a full time employee to do nothing but maintain bathrooms in the park? Where was that employee when it was “bad then”?

“It’s malicious, filthy,” she said. “There’s a very dirty, malicious group of people out there these days.”

Two years ago, the city had a person available all day to tend to the park restrooms, she said, and the problem was “bad then. It’s worse now.”

Well, when California farm products are banned elsewhere and the ag business goes to heck, we can thank ecoterrorists like David Dilworth for being kind and gentle to the moths.

State officials are calling the invasive light brown apple moth’s recent havoc on two Watsonville berry crops the first “significant damage” since the pest was discovered in California two years ago.

Bolda wrote it was “imperative” growers undertake control measures to inimize the chance of LBAM damage. “The increasing problem of the light brown apple moth — epiphyas postvittana — should be of great interest to all berry growers in the Santa Cruz and Monterey County production district,” Bolda wrote in a blog a week earlier. About 2,400 square miles are under quarantine in California because of the light brown apple moth threat to crops.

Baby Drop Off Site: P.G.F.D.

Unwanted babies in P.G?

State Senate Bill 1368, the “Safe Baby Surrender Bill,” adopted in 2001 and amended in 2005, exempts parents or people holding legal custody of a newborn less than 72 hours old from prosecution for abandonment if the child is surrendered to a hospital or other designated safe surrender site. Fire departments in Seaside and Monterey have been designated such sites because they are staffed 24 hours a day. On Wednesday, the Pacific Grove City Council designated the city fire station as a safe surrender site for unwanted newborns.

What? Slow Sales Of Expensive Mexican Formula Meals?

Not like there is any shortage of Mexican restaurants around here.

General Manager Sergio Maravilla said there’s been less parties coming in to eat and fewer company lunches. He said there’s been no layoffs, but they’ve had to cut back on expenditures like advertising.

Real Mex Restaurants also owns Chevy’s, Acapulco and the upscale El Torito Grill among others. All are said to be facing the same woes.

Beware Of Rapists At Spanish Bay

Last Tuesday, a woman called the sheriff ’s office and said a man had drugged and then raped her in a Spanish Bay hotel room Saturday night, according to Monterey County Sheriff.

Also on June 7, a teenager told police she was raped on the Spanish Bay golf course, according to MCSO Cmdr. Tracy Brown. A deputy interviewed the girl after Pacific Grove police found the “heavily intoxicated” 17-year-old
near Asilomar State Beach.

How About No Parking For Kooky Dog Walkers?

Congress Ext

Citing costs, the need for zoning changes, and the availability of parking some hundred yards away on Forest Lodge Road, the Council went with the lower-cost – and potentially revenue-generating – option of installing more “no parking” signs and asking Pacific Grove Police to enforce the no parking zone.

This example of wasted efforts started back in January. While all attention was being placed on giving dog owners a place to DRIVE TO & PARK THEIR CARS AT so they can then take a walk, the rest of the city is crumbling.

Besides, if P.G. really wanted to use parking fines as a way to increase revenue, all they need to do is go to the 200 block of Fountain where restaurant workers/owners park their cars all day long..

“They were driving southbound on Alva Lane in the Pebble Beach area and were just north of 17 Mile Drive when they approached a curve in the road at what appeared to be an unsafe speed,” he said, describing the accident that occurred just before 6 p.m. June 12. “The driver lost control, and the vehicle ran off the road on the right side and struck a tree on the driver’s side.”

James Crane, founder of one of the nation’s largest freight companies in Houston, Texas, and owner of the 2003 Ferrari 575M Maranello, was riding in the passenger seat and was unharmed, according to Wiest. But the driver, Neil Kelley, also from Houston and CEO of an energy trading firm there, suffered major injuries. Both men are in their 50s.

A crackdown on fast driving in Del Monte Forest that began nearly three years ago has resulted in lower speeds, fewer accidents and overall less crime, according to the Pebble Beach Community Services District.
Since October 2006, California Highway Patrol officers have regularly patrolled Del Monte Forest, an effort the PBCSD says has been highly successful.
